Instead of having parameters encoded into a GET URL (GET requests should
not trigger data creation in general, so in our case it should not
directly create a job request or reschedule a job), I propose that we
have "Request again" buttons on each job, only available 48 hours after
the job completion/failure.

To avoid too much to the already crowded interface, I suggest these
buttons be located on the top right corner of each "job box", and only
appearing when the cursor enters a given job box.

This button would do a POST to /recreate with the job ID in the payload.
The form handler would then extract the job's parameters and create a
new one in the database (I'd prefer to have *new* jobs created rather
than the original job overwritten), finally redirecting the user to this
new job in the queue.

If this looks like a good solution for everyone, I'll most likely go
ahead and implement it this week.
